Due to its convenient location and rich cultural diversity, Miami is a magnet for chefs who want to bring flavor to the city. Peruvian food has become one of the most popular cuisines with a plethora of restaurants serving up traditional dishes that locals and tourists love. Here’s our guide to the most delicious Peruvian restaurants in the 3-0-5.
Right off Biscayne Boulevard and 29th street, this former hole-in-the-wall has become a coveted spot, always buzzing with loyal patrons willing to wait in line for a seat. The décor is humble, but that’s okay because the real show-stopper here is the food. Fresh fish ceviche in lime juice smothered by red onions will have your mouth watering, as will the hot and juicy lomo saltado – a plate of marinated sirloin strips with rice, tomatoes and soaked fries.
The award-winning restaurant has an accessible location in Downtown. The service is attentive, their dishes pioneered by chef Juan Chipoco are tasty, and the setting is the perfect environment for friends and family looking for a delicious meal. The menu consists of classic Peruvian dishes and some with a twist including aji de gallina (chicken breast in a yellow cream), sudado de pescado (slow-cooked fish fillet in a broth), and a variety of ceviche options.
El Chalan has been catering to a loyal following since 1985. The Peruvian restaurant located on Bird Road serves delicious traditional homemade Peruvian plates at lower prices than most others of its kind. Homey and authentic, everything here tastes just like it would in Lima, Peru.
Owned by world-renowned chef Gastón Acurio, this Peruvian spot is popular for both its food and its stunning location. Located in the Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key, the restaurant boasts scenic views of Biscayne Bay and features an extensive menu of creative Asian-Peruvian fusion dishes and traditional seafood ceviche.
Incorporating a Japanese flair to their Peruvian menu, SuViche serves classic dishes such as causa, and sushi. The restaurant offers guests a menu of affordable favorites including lomo saltado, ceviche and chaufa. The trendy locale in Wynwood is busy during lunch and dinner hours, and features a sprawling outdoor bar as well as cool hanging swings to sit in and enjoy a drink with a bite. Guests can also opt for sitting at the tables on the terrace and inside. The restaurant also has several other locations throughout South Florida.
